I'm wondering if this kid will get taken this year.

Shows some skill, but was passed over last year.

How come you guys aren't going 10 players like most of the other drafts?

When I looked up other drafts when I started this, they all seemed to be 9 rounds. I am ok adding another round (an extra fwd, but all others would have to agree).

I personally think we all have enough. Any players taken this late aren't likely to get really that many points

10 rounds finishes off your draft equally. Just an opinion, but the person picking first should finish off the draft with the last pick in it #100. As it stands right now, the person picking last in the first round is finishing off the draft with pick #90 in the final round. So you got first (Sweech) picking 9 players in the first 81 picks. Last place (mzappa) picking 9 players in the first 90 picks. The math doesn't really add up. Making it 10 rounds allows for 10 picks in the total 100 overall for everyone. Of course it's your guys draft and you can do whatever you wish.

Time permitting, I wouldn't be against adding another round. Then again, I wouldn't be overly chafed if we didn't.

With my final pick, I'm taking Latvia's Roberts Lipsbergs. Top rookie scorer in the Dub.

I think 9 is plenty. I was running out of ideas towards round 7.

No, I get that. But at this point in a draft of this type at this point, it really doesn't matter, not much depth in the draft, it's hit or miss at this point.

Seems like there's not much interest in another round, we'll keep it as is.

As for my pick, I'll take...

LW Christoph Bertschy

Regardless we are going to have a "supplemental draft" to replace any player that is not on the team's final roster. All the final rosters should be out tmw, so I will review the rosters tmw and PM everybody affected. I am 99% sure that one player drafted is not on a final roster, and one of the 7 US defensemen drafted so far likely will no be on the final roster as well. There could be others.

I bet to differ. I can name a handful of forwards that will most likely put up quality points. That would most likely make up the difference in points between picking at the top versus the bottom IMO. The top had it easy at the beginning, making it more difficult at the end makes sense. I can see why some wouldn't want to extend the draft, finding sleepers is more difficult than picking the top players

I'm not taking part in this draft, but I'm interested from a bystanders eye. I'm only commenting because I like balance and fairness in competitions and can't say truthfully that there isn't a slight edge (no matter how small some may think it's still there) right now. I hope my honesty is appreciated
